The problem seemed that they didn't want to invest the time to learn something that was "fuckin' great" either . Or if they did, it often , in the case of some of the later covers, rarely seemed to be all that though out ( at least to me ) .
I am happy they brought back 'HC Sunshine' , but come on, let's go ! I realize it wasn't gonna be like 73, but it just cried to be taken out for a spin .
I suspect Bruce wanted them to be the band they no longer were . Sometimes those later 'Dark Stars' , sound like they are not really into it that much . But even where they were in the Bruce period , I think they could have been a LITTLE more adventurous . Sometimes, though, Hornsby's prodding produced some rather cool results !
